Help with AO-27

I'm kinda new to satellites having only worked the RS birds off and on for
the past several years.  I would like to check out AO-27.  I've read many
threads here about all the great contacts being made on AO-27, but I haven't
been able to hear it.  My understanding is that all I need to receive the
bird is an HT and a rubber duck.  I go outside for every pass I can and I
have yet to hear the darn thing.  Is AO-27 on some type of schedule?  I'm
listening on 436.80MHz with the squelch open and hear nothing but static
(yes, my HT does receive ok on 440).  What gives?
